Blue Jays deprived of Ross Stripling


Toronto Blue Jays pitcher Ross Stripling with a right hip injury will be out of action for 15 days.

That's what the organization of the Major League Baseball announced moments before its game against the Tampa Bay Rays in St. Petersburg on Wednesday. The decision is retroactive to July 31.

Stripling has appeared in 23 games this season, including 15 as a starter. He went 5-3 with a 3.16 goals-against average.

The Jays also recalled right-handed pitcher Matt Peacock from their AAA-level branch while sending another right-handed gunner in Mitch White. White had been acquired the day before from the Los Angeles Dodgers.
